BBNBA: Bam Adebayo’s Blocks his way into the Sportscenter Top 10

In Dwyane Wade’s return to Miami, Bam Adebayo stole the show.

The former Kentucky Wildcat was the best player on the court for the Miami Heat.  Adebayo had a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double, but Bam’s best play of the night came on the defensive end.  This spectacular block was the No. 4 play on Sportscaster’s Top 10.

The Heat beat Eric Bledsoe’s Bucks 91-85 in Wade’s first game back at American Airlines Arena.  Bledsoe had 19 points, 6 assists and 4 steals.

Karl-Anthony Towns is in the middle of the play everybody in the NBA is talking about today.  As Towns mad his way down the court to get back on defense, Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau was given a technical for yelling instructions at his player.  The call is baffling.

Towns’ Timberwolves lost by one to the Bulls. He finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists and one killer dunk.

    Liggins has got to find some offense in his game if you start in a NBA game and finish with 0 points how can a team win he is a very good defensive player but you have to score points if you want to stay in the rotation, the Pels can’t have 2 (Rondo) players playing and only scoring 2 or 4 points night after night that’s been his Achilles heel ( see what did there) in his time with teams I hope he can start putting up points

    I wish we had bam this season ?

      Bam will have the best career of any UK player from last year’s team. Fox can’t shoot and Monk is too small. Bam is going to be a star when Miami dumps Whiteside. His improvement is incredible. All he needs to do is quit bringing the ball down low…he still gets stripped constantly. That and develop a consistent jumper, but he’s got a great stroke.

    I’ll post this one more time and quit:

    No, I don’t have an interest in this. It’s just that I see a lot of folks on here who, like me, wish the Colonels had become an NBA team.
